39 weeks

28 Mar

Well, folks, this is it. This is my last weekly pregnancy photo. I’m going into the hospital tonight to be induced. Not what I had hoped for, but my fluid is low and his head is big, so my doctor said we either had to induce now or schedule a c-section. I’m really hoping I can have a smooth, vaginal delivery, but I know the most important thing is that Liam is healthy, so I’m going to try to go with the flow and not stress.

I got sick on Sunday, so I’m still kind of recovering, which isn’t ideal. I have a bit of a cough and am congested, but I’m feeling much better today that I have all week, so that’s good.

I made it to the end with no stretchmarks on my belly (I’ve had them on my hips, thighs, and butt since high school) and I still have ankles! Hooray! For your giggling pleasure, here’s a couple of naked belly photos – something I swore I’d never do, but decided to cave in to once I realized I might never remember what I looked like this pregnant.

I’m going to miss this big belly of mine!

It might take me a few days to post an update here, but I will post a picture of Liam when he arrives over on Life with Liam, so be sure to check there Thursday evening or Friday morning!
